Responding to crisis—global leaders in care

Hadassah Medical Organization is known worldwide for its expertise in responding to medical crises. Its ER and Trauma Unit have played critical roles in treating victims of terror incidents and mass casualty events, in Israel and abroad. It was the first Trauma Unit in Israel and is the only Level 1-A unit in the Greater Jerusalem Region. HMO physicians helped Japan create its first hospice; performed eye surgery on thousands of blind Kenyans, enabling them to see again; trained Thai medical personnel in bone marrow transplantation; participated in a pilot program of adult male circumcision in Swaziland, to help stem the spread of AIDS; set up field hospitals in Haiti after a devastating earthquake; helped plan, construct and open a hospital in Kinshasa, Congo, and more.

HMO personnel have been "first responders" to catastrophic world events, from the Asian tsunami, to the earthquake in Haiti, to the AIDS epidemic in Africa.
